Lovely! I like the fact that it's not fully open. That makes it different from all the rest of the photos of this flower I have seen. Cheers.


one can almost smell the freshness...agree with Sachira.

what a stunning picture. Your national flower is beautiful. Until now, I only knew yellow, white and pink water lilies...

Thank you all for your wonderful comments.

Glad you like it mate.


Yes, it gave me a great start for the day.

Glad you like it. But I would love to get bit more sharp details of it.

Wish you the same :D

Yep, it’s a beautiful flower and even we used to have a pond in our home garden with full of blue water lilies. Glad that I was able to show you something new =D

That purple has a neon-light feel to it. Beautiful capture.
